Carla's Tip of the Week

Quick Fix: Now that almost everyone has an ice maker in their fridge, the ice cube tray has become one of the most underrated tools in the kitchen. But ice cube trays are still pretty handy and there are still lots of good reasons to keep a few trays around:
  1. The next time you make cookies from scratch, save some of the dough portioned out into an ice cube tray. Then bake them off as many as you want for a sinful, just for you treat.

  2. Cut a lemon into 8 pieces and pop each slice into a cube, cover with water and freeze for a garbage disposal freshener-upper. Just drop a cube in the disposal and run it with hot water.

  3. Sometimes when baking you need only the whites or the yolks of eggs to make a cake. Freeze the leftovers in cube trays and use them the next time you make scrambled eggs.

  4. Sometimes you only use a half a lemon or lime. Squeeze the rest into an ice cube tray and freeze for later use in drinks and recipes.
